Apollo Nida, husband of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks, may be following in the footsteps of fellow "Housewives" stars Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice.

Two months after being arrested on charges of identity theft, bank fraud, and conspiracy, Nida is closing in on a plea deal, according to a March 18 report by Radar Online.

In new court documents, Nida is reportedly in talks with prosecutors to cut a deal if he agrees to a guilty plea, as the Giudice's did last month.

“They are still in the process of investigating additional facts and negotiating a resolution,” the documents explain, and “have made substantial progress toward a resolution of this case.”

As this point, the ball is reportedly in Nida's court, and it is his responsibility to come up with a plea deal that would be both pleasing to the prosecution and agreeable with his own life, which currently involves his wife and two young sons.

Unlike the Giudice's court case, Nida's case does not involved his wife, who is a lawyer, in addition to star of the Bravo series. Apparently, she knew nothing of his allegedly shady business dealings, but according to the latest on their relationship, there are no talks of a possible divorce over Nida's charges.
